The actress/model drug conspiracy trial has now been handed to the Jury after final witnesses were quizzed by prosecutor Renee Rose on Monday morning, September 27.


The jury in the Anna Nicole Smith drug conspiracy trial has begun its deliberation after the final witnesses in the months-long case were quizzed by prosecutor Renee Rose on Monday morning, September 27.

The actress/model's companion and lawyer Howard K. Stern and doctors Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich stand accused of providing excessive medication to Smith. All three have pleaded not guilty. Smith died from a drug overdose in a Florida hotel room in 2007.

In a last hearing, Dr. Victor Kovener testified that the model suffered constant pain, stemming from an unknown cause, and required drugs for physical and emotional relief. He said, "She could become addicted to Jello (gelatin dessert)."

Meanwhile, during another hearing, Smith's ex-lover Larry Birkhead testified, "She would say, 'I'm in pain. I'm not a drug addict... I have a high tolerance because I'm in pain'."
